announcer ]  who will raise taxes on the middle class? according to an independent, non-partisan study, barack obama and the liberals will raise taxes on the middle class by $4,000. the same organization says the plan from mitt romney and common sense conservatives is "not a tax hike on the middle class." want proof? read the non-partisan study for yourself at american.com. obama and his liberal allies? we can't afford four more years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. we can't afford four more years. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt romney - tough on china? since when? . >>> for many of you, this is the beginning of a new holiday weekend. some bars will be allowed to stay open later until 4:00 a.m. at monday morning. not everyone thinks that is a great i

of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing the debt down. cool ones. for example, how about a federal state, local, tax amnesty program? there are a lot of people in the underground economy that would be brought above ground with amnesty program. i estimate a federal, state and local tax amnesty program would raise about $800 billion in 90 days. you can also sell some assets off. camped person -- camp pendleton is 500 square miles in california. why not sell it? >>neil: my point, when you say it is too big to handle, you are missing the point, you cannot cut $16 trillion debt but you can boom your way from it. we are losing sight and what bill clinton learned in 1993, 1994, if you present a plan that looks credible like you want to reverse the direction, sometimes that creates a boom in and of itself and inspires confidence in the market that has little confidence

clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm runni
a chance to explain what would happen to your taxes they were in charge. >> the question is not where we have been but where we are going. >> it's going to take a different path, not one x have been on, not the one the president described as a top down cut taxes for the rich. that not what i'm going to do. >> it's not possible to come up with enough loopholes for individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. >> there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they are advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving opportunities to middle class. >> i have got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that not always true but repeating it hoping i will believe it. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> we do better when the middle class is doing well. by giving them those tax cuts they have more money in their pocket so maybe they can buy a new car. >> under the president's tax policies middle americans have been buried. they have been crushe
and a tax cut. that was done with the republican governor, is split between republicans and democrats in the house and senate. it was a bipartisan effort. we got it done for texas. road. been on the i really do not know. >> mr. sadler, a democrat has not won a statewide office in texas since 1994. do you consider this an uphill battle? >> for an open senate seat, it is always a battle, and should be, and needs to be, regardless of the party. i understand we have not elected a democrat in a long time. >> let's go to mr. cruz. he said the day after you beat lt. governor dewhurst, he said he would run scared for the general election. but you have agreed to this and what other debt -- televised debate. you criticized governor dewhurst for having almost 40 candidate forms up to the primary, but are you planning its eighth and coasting? safe and coasting? >> we have been crisscrossing the state of texas. we have been all over the state, literally hundreds of dop's and vfw halls and enny's talking with voters in every part of the state. that is what we are doing between now and election day.
to tackle at an issue, increasing their taxes? >> let's start with the families. they will get their attention. the voters have to understand all this, which they did not, and voters need to understand what we have to do to get all this corrected, and they do not. if we ever get that over to the voters, they will vote for the people who are geared up, ready, and know how to do it and are running on that basis, and then we can change this country forever and get us back to where we used to be when i was a boy in the depression. why schoolteachers and would have been doctors, lawyers, indian chiefs today. with luck they were making $200 a month, but they were talented, they brought out the best in all of us. they were by example really fine people, and with the highest qualities. all that got transmitted to the children at class a even if they were not getting it at home. >> when you were running you were talking about increasing not necessarily dollars per capita, but investing in education, communications, and transportation. even while trying to reduce deficits and debt, you w
rid of the charitable deduction, because that's the only way you have revenue neutrality in these tax cuts he's talking about. his only plan for economic improvement in this country is to cut the taxes mainly of the rich. that's his only plan. the only defense of this strategy is he's going to get rid of loopholes. tell us that, governor. show us what you're going to do or stop talking. i think he's got to be that aggressive. but the main message is, show me your cards. stop bluffing. >> we have seen a little bit of telegraphing this week from mr. romney, that maybe he will put some details into his economic talk. he's started to float some new ideas about taxes that he never floated before. my question is whether or not he thinks the right place to unveil those is in a debate setting. surprise the president with something he's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight,
there be anything surprising that emerges from there? mike the committee be smaller tax >> we were talking about rumors earlier in the context of -- might thed committee be smaller? >> we were talking rumors earlier. probably the u.s. is on the side, a minor concern that may have affected by a day or two. but fundamentally i think this got decided out of an internal logic in china, and not looking at united states. my own personal guess is that if you look at the pool of people eligible to be the next and the commit -- standing committee, we may have some difficulty deciding which fisher going to get pulled out of the pond. it is revealing to look at the fish in the pond, the totality of what they are choosing among and what we're looking at is a more diverse group of people in terms of education, business, law, even humanity, to some extent. we are looking at a broader generations. we are looking at people, we were talking about xi. he has some enormous experience, my those leaders from all over the world visiting his city. i think we are looking at people experienced in the world. when we look
for the employed, tax cuts for the middle class. saving homes cross my heart and hope to die. i, mitt romney, believe in all of these things. but i do not like the way the present administration is doing them. so just turn them over to me and i will do all of them. i will do more of them. i will do them better and the doing of them will not cost anybody anything. now, mitt romney would surely win the golden pinocchio. suffice it to say he told so many whoppers, too many to recount here. we're going to air our top mitt debate lies throughout tonight's show. let's start with the biggy. taxes. >> romney: first of all, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. my number one principle is there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> jennifer: the tax cuts. remember how he said he would lower the rates on everybody by 20%? that's on his web site, part of his tax plan? that lowering of the rates costs $5 trillion. now, he says he wants to make the tax cut
to talk about things like, you know, like ending tax breaks and getting people back to work, it seemed like those things backfired with a very powerful mitt romney standing next to him. let me show you exactly what i mean and i want to ask you about it on the other side. >> part of the way to do is to not give tax breaks to companies that are shipping shops overseas. right now, you can actually take a deduction for moving a plan overseas. i think most americans would say that doesn't make sense and all of that raises revenue. >> you said you debt a deduction for take ago plant overseas? look. i've been in business 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. what we do have right now is bringing money overseas back to this country. >> dana, if he was trying to, you know, articulate some good policy there, it seemed like he just kept getting smacked down. whereas on the campaign trail, he is not getting the smack downs. >> what you just play is so -- for two r
on tax policy, energy, medicare reform, your hometown newspaper has taken to calling you senator gone. you've got one of the worst attendance records in the united states senate. now, in my capacity as vice president, i am the president of the senate, the presiding officer. i'm up in the senate most tuesdays when they're in session. the first time i ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight. with respect to israel and palestine, gwen, the suicide bombers in part were generated by saddam hussein, who paid $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers. i personally think one of the reasons that we don't have as many suicide attacks today in israel as we had in the past is because saddam's no longer in business. we've been strong supporters of israel. if president stepped forward and put in place a policy basically that said we will support the establishment of two states. the first president ever to say establish and support a palestinian state next door to israelis. but first, there has to be an interlocking agreement you can trust and deal with. we don't have that now. with y
to do to pay for obama care. also got to point out he's in favor of a tax plan that will kill 700,000 jobs. so he had the chance to answer those questions or not answer them as the case may be, but then -- i think even more important was the chance to talk about where we're going in the future and what he would do and i'd do and what he described was n my view, a reiteration of the status quo. he's going to keep doing the things he's done in the past, have a stimulus if he can, hire more government workers if he can, he's going to pick winners and losers like solyndra, tesla. a friend of mine said he doesn't like picking winners and losers, he likes picking losers. and so -- and, of course, he's in favor of higher taxes. yesterday the vice president blurted out the truth. he said, in fact, they do want to raise taxes a trillion dollars. i don't want to raise taxes on any americans because i want to create good jobs in america. now i take america in a very different direction. first of all, i want to make sure that our policies encourage job growth. i have five things i'll do, you'
to not pay federal taxes part of the 47%. oh irony thy bitter pill. mitt romney is leading among the 47% he derided in ohio. really, what can he do? what can governor romney do at this point in the campaign to turn it around? can he be funny? should he get an earring? get his hair done? what could he possibly do to try to change his fortune? i want to know what the bill press listeners think. we're at 1-866-55-press. is there any way mitt romney can win this or is he really in the lead and as dick morris and sean hannity have said, all of the polls are lying and all of the polls are fraud because it is such a liberal media. so we want to know what you think. give us a buzz at 1-866-55-press. and let's have a listen, if we can to a very fascinating piece of audio. mitt romney's garbage man who i presume, isn't part of the 47% but he's a hard working american citizen. i would imagine he's union. i would hope he is. and they tracked down one of mitt romney's sanitation workers. let's give a listen to this audio.
. they should pay taxes. then we should have some kind of clear pathway. it does not mean the front of the line. we can make whatever requirements we want. but we cannot continue to stick our head in the sand. this is too important, too important for our state. if we do not do anything, we will have the same discussion. >> mr. cruz, do you support a path to citizenship for the 1.6 texas? >> i do not. and let me say more broadly, i think there is a very clear divide. as i said before, i commend mr. sadler for running as an unapologetic liberal. illegals. i do not. he supports obamacare. i do not. mr. sadler has opposed second amendment rights. i fight for second amendment rights. >> what does that have to do with? he is going off on -- >> mr. sadler has championed on income tax and the state of texas. i oppose that. there is a sharp difference. that is good, becauseit gives texans a clear choice between what is right -- the right direction. >> so what would you do for the illegal immigrants here? do you see that as a problem? >> the texas home-building and restaurant industries are sensitive to
have to find $900 billion of tax increases or cost reductions. i think that mitt has to press president obama on what his plan is to do that. he has steadfastly refused to cut costs. that portends $900 billion of tax increases. our economy simply is not going to recover quickly with that hanging over its head. mitt's plan is more cost reduction. president obama is much, much bigger. income prehensably large tax kin p increases. people think letting bush tax cuts on people earning over $250,000 is the answer to the problem. that is $50 billion a year. if you cut capital gains and estate tax it is another 50 dal billion a year. that doesn't cut it. melissa: congressman, do you think the governor should go into numbers like that? i'm a thumb members gal. i like to see what is really happening. i'm not sure the rest of the american public can sort through the math? should he talk about the real picture of the economy and talk about passionately. which do you think is better case for the economy? >> no doubt he will talk about unemployment north of 8% for 43 months. no doubt he will talk abo
, one of the most liberal governors in america. he has raised taxes five times. he just raised taxes last year. that is why i love people refer to him as tax hike mike. that is why they refer to the state of massachusetts as tax achussetts. i don't blame senator bentsen for not talking about michael dukakis. his talking more about his record. i had to blame the federal policies of -- the liberal policies of michael dukakis, i wouldn't do that either. >> you have the to protect the social security trust fund. but you must know that there's something to the argument of your fellow democrat bob strauss that some strain on security growth is needed or to tax social secure benefits as regular income. you spoke for a six-month delay on cost of milk -- cost-of- living increases. are you and gov. dukakis using this issue politically rather than dealing with it responsibly? >> social security is an issue where senator quayle voted eight times. they tried to cut the benefits for 62-year of retirees by 40%. they tried to do and and run on socials record when they first came in after promising n
to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%, but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas, i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plantoverseas? i've been in business for 25 years, i have no idea what you're talking about. >> so i don't either. because i actually don't know the tax code that well. are there actually incentives currently, hal, that encourage people to take their jobs out of the united states? >> well, both the president and mitt romney are both right the way they answered the question. the reality is we don't have a specific incentive to take jobs out of the u.s. but what happens is if you can move your taxable income to another jurisdiction that has a low tax rate, like china, you can pay less taxes in total as long as you don't repatriate the money back to the u.s. the president is right that
in the inner city and paul ryan said bringing opportunity. >>> and you can do that with cutting taxes with a big tax cut. >> paul ryan said those are your word and not mine thampts kind of strange are you trying to stuff words in people's mouths. this was a local affiliate out of flint, michigan. an important state. >> brian: especially the polls are closing to within three. and it is interesting that paul ryan is out giving interviews and vice-president biden is in a six day -- c>> steve: no kidding. good for paul ryan stick to the press. the guy had something in mind. and it is the thing that newt gingrich did and was effective. maybe joe biden should be looking for that paul ryan. >> gretchen: the mitt romney declaring war on the president obama. >> how does romney's plan stack up. veteran of the wars. coming up next. >> brian: you never saw a full fight quite like this one. >> steve: oh, my goodness. you are right. and then you never saw a bull fight like that one. we'll watch it over and over again. weight watchers online was so easy you look up a food, you eat the food, you trac
he compiled a very distinguished record. he oversaw major tax and health care reform and also major improvements in public education. following his service as governor he was appointed by president obama as the ambassador to china in 2009. he left that position to run for president and gained tremendous respect for his forthright discussion of important policy challenges. this fall, governor huntsman actually joined the brookings institution as a distinguished fellow, so we are pleased to call in our colleague. bart gordon is a practicing attorney and partner at k&l gates and also a distinguished fellow at the council on competitiveness. bard is a former u.s. representative from the state of tennessee. he served in congress for 26 years from 2007-2010 he served as chairman of the house committee on science and technology. bard is working with the brookings institution to improve public sector leadership as part of our new initiative on improving leadership and management. bill kristol is the editor of "the weekly standard," which he cofounded in 1995. prior to starting that he led t
, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. but they don't want to vote for romney because of all the negatives obama's piled on them which has not been answered. they're sitting on one side waiting for permission to jump over and vote for romney. in the debate, that he's not a monster, that he's a man of integrity and defending himself on this stuff, can absolutely encourage them to jump over and make it possible for them to do that. >> sean: what a joke all weekend, watching the obama people trying to lower expectations. >> yeah, right. >> sean: 2-1. >> let's par remember that most debates work in favor of the challenger. the challenger walks on and does a good job, like reagan did against carter, all the fears of him go away. carter against gerald ford in 1976. mondale against reagan
stated the things he should have said i'm going to have that $5 trillion tax cut. i understand that obama had a bad debate, didn't do what he was supposed to do but mr. romney lied. >> bill: you are absolutely right. again, i compared romney's debate performance to the ryan speech in tampa. it was a good performance but it was packed with lies. i think the entire media was focusing on stage craft and performance or entertainment or acting ability and not on the substance of what they said. on the substance of what he said mitt romney simply did not tell the truth about the $5 million, about health care, about a whole lot of stuff. kevin in chicago, kevin getting rid of big bird good idea? >> caller: yeah, my granddaughter is four years old, so i'm ul up to speed on big bird. and it brings back memories of when my kids were young. >> bill: same here. >> caller: it is just an example of the crap that comes out of his mouth. they don't realize the value of putting something on tv for the kids to watch -- >> bill: and learn, yeah. >> caller: and the whole indu
